My uncle and aunt were celebrating their 50th Wedding Anniversary 50 years later on the exact same day they were married which was September 24th, 1967. The party was September 24th, 2017. Wow! How cool is that?
This couple has traveled extensively worldwide, and had careers with NWA Airlines and RCA. Amazing, and their generosity throughout the years has been unbelievable. This couple has touched many hearts.
When planning for this large event, the couple wanted to chronicle their lives together in an unique way. There was a suggestion to put their trip and career trinkets on the tables. Trains was another love of theirs, as well as volunteering/bringing needed items to Haiti. 12 trips to Haiti alone!
In preparing for the remodel, these homeowners needed to pack up most of their house. The daunting task of packing up a kitchen or closets and moving furniture out of rooms takes more time than what homeowners expect. And, in this case, this couple worked long into more than one night to be ready for the contractors to start work.
The couple that asked me to help them with finish selection process had quite a bit to do initially since it was both the interior and exterior they were remodeling. To start with, the contracts that needed to be drawn up took a lot longer than they thought it would. There were a lot of moving pieces and parts for this enormous project.
The contractor advised the couple to start with kitchen cupboards, and pick out the some of the external finishes so orders could be submitted to keep the timeline. The couple really liked a mission style home they had walked thru when trying to decide whether to sell their current home and buy a different home. Ultimately, the decision was to stay so they wanted to make it their retirement ‘dream’ home.
